Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Malcolm Stewart underwent successful surgery today to repair a knee injury sustained in a recent practice accident, according to a post on his social media.
After claiming a career-best third in last year’s 450SX standings, the 30-year-old was exceptional in the opening two rounds of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, leading multiple laps at Anaheim 1 and in San Diego prior to being injured.
Nathan Ramsey, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager: “It was very tough to receive the news that Malcolm will need to undergo knee surgery. He has worked so hard to be in a position to win races this year and I truly believe he was ready. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing program will support him in every way that we can through his recovery and we can’t wait to get him back on track and back at the races.”
It is yet to be determined when Stewart will be fit to return to action following his recovery.
Malcolm – Surgery went well! I really appreciate all the kind messages from everyone, you guys are awesome!
